Event Description


The campground is closed to the general public until Memorial Day. But Ranger Chris opens the campground Friday morning JUST FOR US. It's secret! It's special. We've been doing this for 10 years!!!! Trust us. The campground will be open on Friday at 9 a.m. 

There will be space for you - no reservation needed. We have had years with over 60+ VWs and plenty of room to spare. No early birds please. Friday is the first day you can camp. If you want to stay the week, you are welcome to extend your stay.

Simply RSVP here so we have an idea on how many might show up and then show up! No worries!

For those of you who have been, you know why you come back.

Hopefully we have a good turn out, due to bad weather and the virus, Ranger Chris has had  the two previous years with out much income. We  need to show support for him and Bus City.

Hi All. We're new to this forum and stoked to attend Bus City for the first time. Couple of questions though (which I hope aren't too stupid)... 1) can we bring our teens and dog and 2) is it possible to bring our truck (for extra junk like kayaks) along with our bus? Appreciate any feedback. Thanks much. - Andie and Duke

Hi Andie and Duke - we look forward to meeting you. Yes, bring the kids and dogs are welcome. Schoolhouse does have a policy of no pit bulls or aggressive dogs. If you bring an extra truck, it will count as an extra vehicle. It is $6/day for an extra vehicle in your site.

This event is rain or shine. The last time it rained, the Wet Westies people came and made the California  campers look like wimps.

Please put us down; we are definitely attending again with "The Toaster" -

Will gladly follow all Covid guidelines.

We have RSVPed (here, on the camper family site); but if anything else is needed from us (besides bringing cash to pay for our site), don't hesitate to let us know.

Looking forward to camping with you all again; folks we have met before and new folks too!

Question about picnic tables. Folks at the 4/20 event said they aren’t provided at sites but campground website says they are. Figured maybe they are put out after this event is over?
Comment by Gene Burris on April 21, 2021 at 8:24pm

There are picnic tables at the sites.

Hey all - looking forward to seeing everyone! We are a month away and I can't wait to camp with everyone again. Hope you are having a beautiful day!
